QUOTE
A Conservative MP has suggested that people with disabilities wanting to get on to the job ladder should be able to offer themselves for work at below the minimum wage.

Philip Davies claimed "vulnerable" people were disadvantaged in the workplace because they had to compete with able-bodied candidates for jobs, but could not offer to accept lower wages.

The MP for Shipley told the Commons during the second reading of the Employment Opportunities Bill: "The people who are most disadvantaged by the national minimum wage are the most vulnerable in society.

"My concern about it is it prevents those people from being given the opportunity to get the first rung on the employment ladder."

Mr Davies said he had spoken to people with mental health problems during a visit to the charity Mind and found they were "quite accepting" of the fact they would be overlooked. ...

This is an arrogant government, far more arrogant than the Thatcher government. They were rubbing their hands with delight at the state of world countries/ governments, Stating- and what they keep repeating – all fault of last government. Nothing to do, as the world knows, with what happened in U.S., total, greedy, unfettered Capitalism
All was a marvellous opportunity to bring in all of their Ideology- survival of the strongest. Blame Socialism, all the benefit cheats and now ‘Runaway fathers’, meaning they want to charge single mothers for chasing after the fathers for maintenance. Preach to those that ‘Have’ that all is the fault of the ‘Have not’s; the ‘Thatcher Doctrine’ – back to the Victorian era, and didn’t it work well then with those ‘Victorian values’ as Thatcher called them.

Mathieson, if you refer here to Tommy Kennedy you obviously know nothing of the mark of the man.

Well, I confess I am going on a past post of his where he admitted to being a capitalist. Or maybe he was not of the "unfettered greed" type capitalist but one of those fluffy, warm and fuzzy type. laugh.gif

Sorry Tommy cant agree with you. Nothing was, nor ever will be as arrogant as that ill educated worker hating harpy and mother to all the yuppie button pushers of Britain. Even the queen of England hated her.
Tommy Kennedy
Nearly agree with you, Dunvegan, but she had more skill, cunning than our present lot. For one thing she knew to keep the cops and army, parts of the civil service, on her side. She thought carefully of her proposals, making sure there would be no 'U-turns' as the present government has had to do. Even encouraged benefit cheats - getting them to seek disability benefits to keep the dole numbers down. Futher created a lot of Tories, letting those who could affod it, buy their council houses. In her reign even the likes of that THEE could have got his Knighthood and the Queen hated her 'cause she was as common as him tongue.gif

Problem with your post is I’m not sure if it’s ‘you’ or ‘he of many identities’, not saying it isn’t you but its known when he’s been banned his mates have let him post under their name, and your posts are similar to him at times
Like him you post out of context. I’ve never denied being a Capitalist – still am in my old age as I let out commercial properties I own – nor have I condemned Capitalism; a natural evolution from ‘barter’ and I’m sure it will survive for many centuries. I do condemn total ‘Unfettered’ Capitalism. The masses suffered greatly from it, enslaving them, since the birth of the industrial revolution thru to the first half of the last century.
Even a ‘one man’ newsagent is a Capitalist – buys a newspaper and sells it for more than he paid for it
It was Socialist fighters that first started to fetter Capitalism some. Ironically with the progress of modern technology and the need for a better educated ‘people’ some ‘self fettering ‘was necessary as modern capitalism depends on the masses having a measure of prosperity.
It’s reported that 17 million people here will not have a holiday this year; the airlines will not like that. Nor will the sellers of telly’s/computers/ mobile phones, urging people to dump their old models and buy the latest ones.
In just decades ago the masses were happy if they could afford the necessities of life, not now; they want that holiday abroad and the latest telly! Bad enough rising food prices but if they can’t afford the latest mobile phone!!!
Modern capitalism is even dependant on kids having money to buy the latest gadget- never in old capitalism.
The Tories would like to turn back the clock when only the elite and posh toffs like me tongue.gif can have foreign holidays and share in the latest technology. They will get away with it for a period but they can no longer put troops on the streets against protesters as they did – again just decades ago.

I have several areas of health which could be considered disabilities, and indeed used to work in the Civil Service, until my health became too bad. I had many operations requiring up to three months recuperation at a time and led to me getting half pay, then eventual dismissal. So there I was after many years of service being told by the Government agency, the Department of Work and Pensions, that I wasn't fit for work. Official you might think. Last year, my conditions becoming worse, I was called to a "medical" at Corunna House and was suddenly found fit for work. I appealed the decision and won the appeal. That you may think would be that, but this year I have had to go through the same process again with the examiner again finding me fit for work, and with me having to appeal yet again, it taking four weeks for me to obtain any benefits due to me, housing benefit included. My conditions have recently seen me in hospital, yet apparently employers would love me to work for them. Somehow I doubt It. I wish I WAS fit for work, but I know I'm not We do seem to be returning to the old tory Victorian values rubbish where we return to the concept of the deserving and undeserving poor.
Whilst I was waiting to be seen, there was another man there, supported by his family. The man only had one leg. I have no way of knowing how this happened to the poor guy, but he could have been an ex soldier? Who knows. The end result will probably be that he will be found fit for work too. The ATOS Doctors don't examine you you see, it's a form filling exercise and a snapshot into someone's life. It seems that if you are fit enough to get to the place, then you're wonderfully fit always. I know there are people who abuse the system, but at the moment they appear to be government ministers.

As I’ve said before,Tamhickey, the Tories always blame, Socialism, the poor/disabled, unfortunates in life for their own circumstances – and it is them who are responsible for the countries problems; plus of course foreigners; preach it loud and clear, over and over again to the ‘haves’
Many of ‘They’ who have a good quality of life sincerely believe it’s all down to their own cleverness/ability; nothing to do with them having fortunate circumstances that they could take advantage of.

There is a certain type of person who dislikes the Tories. This person usually has a serious dislike of the royal family and if Glaswegian is almost certain to follow the celtic. Generally, being unemployed and sponging from the state is another facet of their make up.

And upon tracing their family tree they usually have little British history in their family...

I hate the toraidhe, and impostors and impersonators of Scots. The English / German monarchy. Who once had a nazi king who requested that his Hitlerite brothers continue their heavy bombing of Britain to bring them into the fold. Buried in Windsor castle with full royal honours. I have worked at meaningful jobs since I was 16 and worked in jobs the impostor would never had the cohonjos to approach. My family history can be traced back in Alba before that word was used to define our land. I know I have accumulated greater wealth, through many years of hard work and wise investment, that the clown would have never have achieved in his bereft life, lived a life the poor decrepit dysfunctional will never aspire to. It matters naught to me what names and attributes are posted in my direction but I am calling for the impostor to be banned from here for the disgusting remarks it has now, and in guises in the past, made to other good and true members of this board.
